Delta yanks ‘creepy’ suggestive napkins from planes after backlash

Share

The airline recently apologized after giving its passengers Diet Coke napkins in previous flights.

What happened: The napkin, which appeared on Delta Air Lines flights and was made by Coca-Cola, was distributed with drinks, according to NBC News.

"Be a little old school", it says.

A third simply provides space for punters to write their names and numbers down.

What's so offensive about a napkin, you might ask?

A third urged: "Remove these napkins they are creepy".

"Anyone else see these bad @Delta in-flight @DietCoke napkins?"

"We sincerely apologise to anyone we may have offended", the spokesman said.

Others, however, said they like the napkins, with one calling them clever and another saying they support Delta. "We worked with our partners at Delta to begin removing the napkins last month and are replacing them with other designs", it said. "Not a good look", wrote one passenger on Twitter.

Delta said: "We rotate Coke products regularly on our aircraft as part of our brand partnership, but missed the mark with this one".

Some thought Coca-Cola's marketing campaign was a cute one.

Payal Lohia added: '@Delta thanks for helping us #single out! can you ship me a box of these napkins so i can use them everywhere, while i sip my @CocaCola?

Delta and Coca-Cola, from their end, have since apologized for "missing the mark" and causing anyone offense, as per INSIDER on February 7 (Feb. 6 in the United States).

Delta reportedly acknowledged that it missed the mark with this one. 'Come through #Coke! Operation #HookASistaUp!'

Love might not be in the air for Delta Air Lines and Coca-Cola.

Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor and father of White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, even joked that he had received numerous napkins and was flattered.
